It's the stampede of hard-charging Stallions.
The Stallions, who are members of the Lone Star Football league, are an arena team gearing up for its second year and first game this season on Saturday, April 7 inside the Merrell Center at 7 p.m.
"[It's] hockey with football pads on," Robert Kent, a former Jackson State quarterback who's starting for the Stallions, said. "If you ever watched and [have] been a part of hockey and seen hockey at its finest [this game is kind of similar] except we don't get to fight. But we're fighting with the pads on."
"Robert Kent is a veteran in this league, and he did well last year," Gerald Dockery, head Stallions coach, said. "[In terms of] total offense, he did well across the board in pass percentages."
"We're gonna prove to the Lone Star League that this is it," Cory Barlow, a Stallions player who grew up in Friendswood, Texas, said. "That this is our run. We're gonna make it [back to the championship] and get that ring on our finger."
Former Houston Texans defensive back, Aaron Glenn, who's also general manager and part owner of the Stallions, said he's all about helping the players get that ring.
"Last year they almost won a championship [but unfortunately] lost one game," said Glenn. "[We] would have been the first team in the city of Houston to go undefeated and win a championship."
Kent has a little message for fans about this season:
"Come on out and check out the Houston Stallions because, hey, after the game you get to come on the field; you get to meet the cheerleaders, which everyone loves to do," said Kent smiling. "You get to shake hands with the players, take pictures. It is a fan and fun family friendly game."
Alright Stallions, we'll soon find out if you have what it takes to ride off into the championship sunset this season.
